A bacon martini. Maple bacon ice cream. Bacon on a stick. Pork wrapped in bacon.

Today is the beginning of Bacon Week at 3 Restaurant in Clarendon, and the eatery has a ramped up the creativity to generate a three-course bacon menu. There’s also a bacon happy hour from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and a bacon-making class at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16.

The restaurant’s affinity for all things bacon has even earned it a segment on an upcoming Travel Channel special called “Bacon Paradise.”

Bacon Week runs through Oct. 21.

See photos of some of the dishes here.

    Something’s just not kosher about this!

    doesn’t sound too appetizing. poor pigs i bet they don’t like the menu one bit.

    Despite thinking it’s a great restaurant, it’s been awhile since I visited “3”. Bacon Week sounds like a perfect reason to go back!

    BRob fully supports APD

  • Jack

    hmm… bacon

    I prefer Toscana Grill’s vegan weekends to 3’s flesh-filled week. Just knowing about this “event” will keep me from ever checking this restaurant out. Gross.

    • vegans are homos

      get a life loser, why don’t you show as much tolerance for those who like bacon, as you want for being gay.

    Don’t tell me they forgot Bacon Pralines? What about deep fried bacon?

    Now, I’m all for bacon. It’s delicious and goes great with a lot of things. There is a line that has been crossed here. This goes from tasty, to tastless, to typical American stereotype. Keep it classy, gents!

    Can we get them to cater for the ground zero mosque? How about for the Hajj? Bacon can win the war on terror just by its amazing flavor.

      hahaha thats awesome!

    This sounds delicious, I love all things bacon. All of you who commented negatively on this are a$$hats who have no sense of humor. Get over yourself and try and relax and live a little and maybe even have a little fun.

    Can we invite ALL local, muslims in the area for a feast to talk about how islam is such a tolerant, peaceful, inviting religion?

    The bacon man lives in a bacon house!!

    RC, yes, factory farming is horrible but there is awesome organic and/or local bacon out there. Not sure what the restaurant uses but we only use the non-factory farmed stuff in our house.

      I know 3 had been getting pork products from a local, free-range farm (http://forestfed.com/). If they still do, they should advertise that fact more. The Duroc/Tamworth cross pigs are really cute. The farmer used to be at the Clarendon farmer’s market selling those cuts that the restaurants didn’t buy.

    I went to this. 3 course menu. Food was OK, they did not really pull out all the stops for bacon. It is like they took a menu item and just added bacon to it. Service was not very good either. Probably not going to go back for their regular menu either.
